Why teach all Australian kids about the NSW Freedom Ride?
Teaching Australian children about the NSW Freedom Ride provides a great opportunity to:
- discover some of the ways Australia discriminated against Aboriginal people in the past
- see that a small dedicated group can have a big impact on ideas and actions
- assess whether the lives of rural Aboriginal people have improved since the 1960s
- understand that democracy involves everyone and not just politicians.
A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
